Is it still panic buying or can we fill up guilt free now?
Just rolled onto the forecourt, put £38 from just under half full to full. At £1.38 it want that much, but on the way out we passed an Esso that wanted £1.43.
Got a bit of a shock when the pump cut out at under £2, somehow I didn’t find the sweet spot for a steady fill rate. It used to be to just stuck the nozzle in and pull full trigger, but somehow that didn’t work.
In reality, you can say that people have been driving around in a bomb for decades. Petrol is highly flammable and will ignite easily. You can see this by the number of vehicle fires there have been. The modern fuel cell vehicles are totally different from the days of the airships. Our company would not put its name against anything that was going to be dangerous.
Usual price in our area is about 134.9 and, surprisingly that's what I paid at a BP garage on Friday (BP are usually 1 or 2 p more). Drove past my local garage where I usually fill up this morning, 2 cars on forecourt. 147.9 They won't be getting my custom again any time soon.
I took the opportunity to fill up my car as I have a drive down to the airport and a few trips in between.
£1.41/ltr.. I cannot see me wanting to commute any time soon !!
I wonder if they jack up business rates for electricity/gas etc we will see more working from home? Or will we see cost cutting exercises that involve job cuts?
